Air Fryer Apple Slices Recipe Notes And Tips

  • Rotate, flip, and stir halfway through the cooking process to help your apples cook more evenly.
  • You can line your air fryer basket with parchment paper to make clean up a little easier.
  • You can slice the apples as thin or thick as you choose, just remember that will affect the cooking time. A thick cut will need to cook a little longer and a thinner cut will need less time.
  • Cook the apples in small batches. Do not try to cook the whole apple at one time. Make sure the apples are not overlapping or touching during the cooking process.

Variations Of Air Fryer Apple Slices To Try

  • Use other spice blends like pumpkin pie spice, apple pie spice, or chai spice. Ginger, nutmeg, and allspice are also great choices depending on your personal preference.
  • Use a mix of sweet and tart apples, like Honeycrisp and Granny Smith apples. You can also use all one variety of your favorite apples if you prefer that. The best apples are any apples that you love (I love a crisp apple for this recipe)
  • Instead of the yogurt dip, add a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of your easy air fryer apples for a guilt-free treat.
  • Drizzle with caramel sauce, maple syrup, or honey for added sweetness.
  • Serve the apple chips as a topping for oatmeal, yogurt or pancakes.
  • Serve as a side dish with savory dishes such roasted chicken or pork chops.

Air Fryer Apple Slices FAQs

Do you have questions about our Baked Air Fryer Apple Slices recipe? If you have a question about these air-fried apples and don’t see it already answered below, please leave it for me in the comments!

What types of apples should I use for this recipe?

Yes, you can use any type of apple for baked air fryer apple slices. However, some varieties like Granny Smith, honey crisp, and pink lady apples tend to hold their shape better during cooking. Golden delicious apples are a sweet choice, but they don’t stay as crisp.

Do I need to peel the apples before baking them in the air fryer?

It’s completely up to you! If you prefer the texture and look of peeled apples, then go ahead and peel them before slicing. Otherwise, leaving the skin on adds extra fiber and nutrients to your dish.
